we were covering the shooting in newtown, connecticut, anderson learned something that made us all sick to our stomach that people were trying to capitalize on the tragedy, fraudulently trying to capitalize on the victims' family families. tonight a woman has been arrested in connection with one of those alleged scams. drew will join me with the details in a moment. first here's how we got to this point. last week the uncle of 6-year-old noah told anderson there were fake web site, facebook pages and e-mails going around asking for donations in noah's name. drew griffin and david fitzpatrick, our produce, tracked one of those e-mails to the bronx, and her name is noah alba, and they went to her house. here is what happened next. >> hi. are you ms. alba? you set up donations on behalf of the newtown tragedy? >> no. >> here is your name and address on the e-mail. >> no, i will show you who i am. >> can i come in with the camera crew? >> no. >> alba eventually agreed to let her voice be recorded and denied she had anything to do with the e-mail having to do with donations. this is mor

using a file that you can down load on the internet. you can actually down load it right here. i have one on my computer. it makes me wonder about the next time nbc comes and checks my computer. this is what happens when a person fits a lower receiver on a gun that is not regulated when they printed it with a 3d printer. this is the video they released of themselves firing bullets out of it. as you can see, the 3d gun failed and busted apart after it fired about six rounds, which makes it yes, a gun, but the technical term for what kind of gun it is is it is a crappy gun because it blew apart. but this kind of thing is not going to stay a crappy gun for long. not when you can get this far with stuff you can find around the house. for all the work that has gone into thinking about who is allowed to have a gun in america and where you can buy one and what kinds of guns people are allowed to have, that all kind of goes out the window. people can just down load their chosen weapon at home and have it made manifests at their desk, as a fully functioning real-life weapon. we are not far off

correspondent dr. sanjay gupta. he is joining us now. now, sanjay, you have been taking a very close look, potentially at the mind of a killer. >> yeah, and that question, why, wolf that you ask, it is hard to say for sure whether there is ever going to be a satisfactory answer to that. but there are several things that medical experts and investigators are going to look at, including specific patterns. we looked at ten of the most widely studied cases, tragedies, i should say in history. and take a look at what we found. first thing you notice when you look around newtown, everyone has that questioning look, why? what did we miss, if anything? no answers yet. just hindsight. to try to make some sense of the tragedy here in newtown, be connecticut, medical investigators are also looking at evidence of patterns, not talking about clothes or even life-style, but rather looking for evidence of specific plans could give some clues as to what was happening in the person's mind and in their brain. it is hard to know, because thankfully, there are relatively few tragedies like this one. but a cl

political editor paul stein houser is in washington this morning. your job is to explain all of this to us. >> it really seems like a way they're playing a game of political chicken right here. you heard the president and house speaker come in front of cameras within two hours of each other. both men were really talking against each other. it was not very optimistic. you're right, optimism of earlier in the week dissipated. take a listen to what both men said. well, we don't have that sound. both men really talking against each other there. here's the sound. >> the president's offer of $1.3 trillion in revenues and $850 billion in spending reductions fails to meet a balanced approach. i hope that the president will get serious soon about providing and working with us on a balanced approach. >> at some point there's got to be i think a recognition on the part of my republican friends that take the deal. you know, they will be able to claim that they have worked with me over the last two years to reduce the deficit more than any other deficit reduction package. >> the president made his comm
at the economy, the looming fiscal cliff. my partner, tyler mathisen kicks it off for us at the new york stock exchange. >> thank you very much. it is a quiet day down here at the new york stock exchange where the major averages are not really doing very much at this hour. let's take a look. the industrials are down 7 2/3 points at 13,163. nasdaq a little bit lower also in percentage terms. also a percentage at 29891.48. 2 3/4 right now at 1416.74. it would appear the markets are watchfully waiting to see what comes out of washington, if anything. of course, mr. boehner has gone back to his home in ohio for the weekend. the president is on duty at the white house. there are phones, as mr. boehner said, in southern ohio where he lives. if there are any developments, the two gentlemen certainly will be able to get in touch with one another. meantime, there are some individual stock stories of interest at this hour. and one of them concerns facebook. be a facebook lockup expires today and 150 million shares will open up on the market. the last time we had a lockup expiration many expected to see
a couple of years ago and through the training, they never used a gun and had a gun in the class. i worry about the training that they have to actually fire the firearm and to use it. without endangering others as well. so there things i'm concerned about, having a concealed weapon on campus of course is -- we have strict policies that relate to that to ensure everyone is safe and a teacher if they violated that policy because they don't want to put others at risk either. >> what about having the weapon in school and having a kid possibly have access to it. that opens the door for accidents. >> absolutely. that's one of the concerns. so our policy is that it has to be concealed and has to be out of sight. you have to have a permit. still a teacher can be overwhelmed by a student and they were carrying a gun. there is definitely -- the safest place is note to have a gun obviously. i can understand on the teacher's side as well that -- and husbands and spouses and teachers who are concerned about the spouse going to school and teachers concerned about themselves and their students. i can un
